in humanities history, we have taken massive steps not only intellectually, but socially as well.
10 thousand years ago humans lived in small nomadic group called band societies.
6 thousand years ago, agriculture developed and with this came the 1st proto states.
Around 2,000–3,000 years ago, some states, such as Persia, India, China, Rome, and Greece, developed through conquest into the first expansive empires. Today we our bound together as nations.
Here you can see China when it began 3000 years ago up until today.
the problem is… these nations do not celebrate nor do they care about the wellbeing of humanity. there attention never strays past that of their own nation’s wellbeing.
When america 1st went to the moon, there was a lot of controversy over which flag should be flown. some people thought the flag of earth should be flown to represent all of humanities 1st steps on terresterial soil. Some people thought the European union flag
its time for society to take the next step. its proven through history that when we band together, we achieve more.
nationalism is no long necessary. we should not care exclusively about our own nations. we should care about humanity as a whole. we should take into concideration our actions affects on all of society, not just what they can contribute to our own nation.
all this suffering in the world that is caused by nationalism. by selfishness. with a virtous world leader, we can get over this. we can end alot of suffering and put that labor to good use. instead of war we can contribute that energy to science, we can put those resources into research to fight aids, or ageing, we can come together as humanity to fight pollution, deforestation.
with a virtous world leader, he or she could promote a truely socialist society where the desires and needs of humanity come 1st.
we base our life decisions off of our desires and needs weather those desires are intellectual, materialistic, spiritual, or even the desire not to desire. the results of these desires are what pushes mankind above all the rest.
when we strive for greatness and knoledge, when we strive for wealth and power. we push foward humanity. the only question is, is how much of that desire is going to be used to push humanity foward and how much will be used to bring us down with war and fighting
the boundaries of nationalism is what holds us down. we cannot combine our power as humanity when our nations turn us against each other.
This is a rough sketch of what I want my speach to consist of. I want to try and show my class that nationalism is limiting humanity. That we can do much more if we come together.
Can you please give suggestions to improve my speach?
